I used wizard and created sql data source, and binded a gridview to it, this gridview has an edit link, click edit link, it will show Update and Cancel link.  It works fine.

I want to know how to connect to the database (the existing sqldatasource) in the code behind and update a record.  When user click Edit link, then input some text into a textbox, and then click Update link, it will automatically update database now, but I also want to manually update the status field for this record to Closed.  How to do that in the code behind?  I need some code.  This is C# application.  Thank you in advance.
